La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
Most eye doctors will say that no one option is ideal under all circumstances for correcting focusing problems associated with presbyopia, the age-related condition that decreases one's ability to see clearly at all distances and creates difficulty in performing up-close activities such as reading. In "Combining Options for Presbyopia," AllAboutVision.com offers advice on how to use multiple presbyopia corrections - either in combination with each other or at different times, depending on activity.
Eventually everyone develops presbyopia, usually at around age 40. Even people who have corrective eye surgery such as LASIK will become presbyopic, necessitating the use of reading glasses or computer glasses in certain circumstances.
Those who have worn eyeglasses all their lives may need to consider multiple pairs of activity-specific, single-vision eyeglasses as well as a multifocal prescription, according to AllAboutVision.com. And people who've had vision correction surgery might consider reading glasses as well as part-time contact lens wear.
"Combining Options for Presbyopia" expands AllAboutVision.com's Vision Over 40 section, which also includes advice for women with menopause-related dry eyes. Other articles explore surgery for presbyopia, multifocal lenses, reading glasses, and night driving and aging.
